Grace writes about her poem: “I’m honored and thrilled that my poem was commended in the People Need Nature challenge. My experience writing this poem, as with other poems I write, was very difficult, especially because I don’t normally write nature poems. I sat at my desk and looked out the window for the longest time, noticing how everything had changed since I last studied the world so intensely many months ago. This challenge definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone, and I’m grateful for this opportunity.”

walking down the side
of my house, i count
the number of steps
it takes to cross
this white field of pebbles.
for months, i could not
touch the world. i only knew it
through the window
in my room. now
the wind bounds past me
like a dog. someone
has overturned a stone
in the backyard.
the vines are crawling
over the summer-
tanned fence again,
and every day i feel
less romantic.
